1 FCS8750 Healthy Meal lans 1 Linda B. Bobroff 2 What Is a Meal lan? A meal plan is a guide to help you plan daily meals and snacks. It allows you to eat foods that you enjoy and that provide a good balance of nutrients for your health. Meal plans can be used by anyone interested in healthy eating. They are very helpful for people who want to manage their weight. How Do Meal lans Work? Each meal plan gives an example of one day's food intake using the food exchange system. The meal plans provide the recommended number of servings from the five food groups in the Food Guide yramid. Using one of the meal plans as a guide, you can select foods from the food exchange lists to plan healthful and tasty meals and snacks. carbohydrate, protein, and fat. The food exchange lists are: # Starch # Fat # Fruit # s # Milk # Combination Foods # Other Carbohydrates # Fast Foods # Vegetable # Meat and Meat Substitutes How Does the Food Exchange System Work? In the food exchange system, foods are grouped into food lists according to their carbohydrate, protein, and fat content. Foods within each list contain similar amounts of total calories, 1.

2 Healthy Meal lans age 2 We recommend that you select a variety of foods that are "nutrient-dense." These foods provide plenty of vitamins and minerals along with calories (energy). Nutrient-dense foods are low in fat and added sugars. You can check food labels to see the fat and sugar content of foods. Low nutrient-density foods provide mostly calories with few other nutrients. We suggest that you eat these foods less often. Limit higher fat foods to stay at your target calorie level. Ounce for ounce, fat provides more than twice as many calories as carbohydrate or protein. Foods that are high in fat also tend to be high in calories. But check the food label since some lowfat foods are high in calories too! Hint: Be sure to choose foods that you enjoy! It will help you stick with your eating plan. What about high calorie foods that you like to eat? Don t worry! You can eat these foods and still stay within your calorie goal. Think of foods like candy, cakes, cookies, and salted chips as sometimes foods. Have them once in a while and eat small portions. Setting up Your Meal lan First, decide your daily calorie goal. This may be to maintain your weight or to lose weight. If you want to lose weight, select your calorie goal to lose no more than one-half to one pound per week. For most people, slow weight loss is best. For help in deciding your calorie goal, contact your county Extension family and consumer sciences agent, a registered dietitian (RD), or a public health nutritionist. My Calorie goal to maintain my weight: 1,500 Calories per day Next, look at the meal plan closest to your calorie level and then plan menus for one week. You can use the sample menu as a guide. Choose foods that are available and that you enjoy eating. lan meals that will work for your lifestyle. Include healthful snacks in your meal plan. They will help keep you from getting too hungry during the day. And be sure to drink at least six glasses of water every day. This will help to keep you "regular" and prevent problems as you eat more high-fiber foods. As you begin selecting foods based on these meal plans, think of it as beginning a new way of life. Be sure to enjoy your meals, and invite your family and friends to share your new way of eating. Finally, include physical activity in your healthier lifestyle. Being active will help you maintain a healthy body weight and keep you feeling healthy and strong. It also reduces health risks. If you have not been active for a long time, check with your doctor before you start an exercise program. August 2002

3 Healthy Meal lans age 3 Using Food Exchange Lists Complete food exchange lists are available in the publication Exchange Lists for Weight Management (see last page for ordering information). The following lists will get you started. Some starchy foods are prepared with fat so they count as 1 starch and 1 fat exchange: Corn bread, 2-in. cube 1 piece French fried potatoes (3 oz) Taco shell, 6 in. 2 Waffle, 4½ in. square 1 Starch List 1 exchange provides: 15 grams carbohydrate 3 grams protein 0-1 gram fat 80 calories Starch exchanges include bread, cereals, starchy vegetables, crackers and snacks, and dried beans, peas, and lentils. Most of these foods are found at the bottom of the Food Guide yramid. That means that we need the most servings of food from this group. These foods provide a variety of vitamins and minerals. One starch exchange is: ½ cup of cereal, pasta, or starchy vegetable 1 ounce of bread ¾ to 1 ounce of most snack foods A few examples of one starch exchange are: Bread Bagel Cereals asta Baked beans Rice Corn otato, baked or boiled opcorn (no fat added) Snack chips, fat-free Beans and peas (dried) 1 slice ½ ½ cup ½ cup, cooked a cup a cup, cooked ½ cup 1 small 3 cups (¾ oz) ½ cup, cooked Fruit List 1 exchange provides: 15 grams carbohydrate 60 calories Fruit exchanges include fresh, frozen, and canned fruits. When choosing canned fruit, select fruit canned in juice or extra light syrup. Include at least one fruit high in vitamin C (oranges, grapefruits, berries, and melons) every day. One fruit exchange is: 1 small to medium fresh fruit ½ cup of canned or fresh fruit ½ cup of fruit juice A few specific examples are: Banana 1 small Blueberries ¾ cup Cantaloupe 1 cup cubes Grapes, small 17 ear, large ½ lums, small 2 runes, dried 3 Strawberries 1¼ cup Orange juice ½ cup Milk List 1 exchange provides: 12 grams carbohydrate 8 grams protein August 2002

4 Healthy Meal lans age 4 Milk and yogurt are excellent sources of calcium and protein as well as several vitamins. Select fat free or lowfat choices. One milk exchange is: 1 cup of fat free or 1% milk (see chart) ¾ cup of plain fat free yogurt Type of milk or yogurt Fat (grams) Calories Fat Free 0 80 Lowfat (1%) Reduced Fat (2%) Whole Higher fat milk or yogurt (2% and whole) counts as a milk exchange and 1 to 1½ fat exchanges. Vegetable List 1 exchange provides: 5 grams carbohydrate 2 grams protein 25 calories Vegetables include fresh, frozen, or canned vegetables. Canned vegetables often contain added salt; you can rinse and drain them to remove some salt. Deep green and orange vegetables provide vitamin A and other nutrients. Several vegetables, including peppers, broccoli, and tomatoes, are rich sources of vitamin C. Starchy vegetables like corn, peas, and potatoes are not included here; they are on the starch list. One vegetable exchange is: Other Carbohydrates List ½ cup of cooked vegetables ½ cup of vegetable juice 1 cup of raw vegetables 1 exchange provides: 15 grams carbohydrate or 1 starch, or 1 fruit, or 1 milk Foods on this list include foods that contain added fat or sugar. You may substitute foods on this list for a starch, fruit, or milk serving. Keep in mind that these foods generally are less nutrient-dense than foods on the other lists. A few examples follow. Count as 1 carbohydrate: Cookie, fat-free 2 small Fruit juice bar, frozen 1 bar Salad dressing, fat-free ¼ cup Count as 1 carbohydrate and 1 fat: Brownie, small, unfrosted Granola bar Ice cream, light 2 in. square 1 bar ½ cup Meat and Meat Alternates List 1 exchange provides: 7 grams protein 0-8 grams fat calories Meat and meat alternates are divided into four lists, depending on their fat content. Select very lean or lean meats and alternates most of the time. Use low-fat cooking methods like broiling, baking, and grilling to limit added fat. One meat exchange is: 1 oz meat, fish, poultry, or cheese ½ cup dried beans (cooked) 1 egg A typical portion of meat often includes three or more exchanges since an exchange is only a oneounce serving. August 2002

5 Healthy Meal lans age 5 Very lean meat and substitutes include white meat chicken or turkey, lean fish, fat-free cheese, egg whites and egg substitutes. Dried beans, peas, and lentils count as one very lean meat and one starch exchange. One fat exchange is: 1 teaspoon of margarine, butter, or oil 1 tablespoon of regular salad dressing Lean meat and substitutes include lean cuts of beef, pork, and other meats, dark meat chicken or turkey, high-fat fish, and cheeses with 1 to 3 grams of fat per ounce. Medium-fat meat and substitutes include ground beef, ribs, poultry with skin, fried fish, eggs, and tofu. A few examples of one fat exchange are: Avocado, medium Almonds or cashews eanut butter Cream cheese Bacon, cooked c 6 nuts 2 tsp 1 Tbsp 1 slice High-fat meat and substitutes are high in fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol. This includes regular cheeses like cheddar, Swiss, and American. Also included are spare ribs, processed sandwich meats, and peanut butter. Fat List 1 exchange provides: 5 grams fat 45 calories The Dietary Guidelines recommend that less than 30 percent of our calories come from fat. The meal plans included in this publication provide about 20 to 25 percent of calories from fat. All fats are concentrated in calories whether they are in solid, whipped, or liquid form. For this reason they need to be measured carefully. One tablespoon of margarine, butter, or mayonnaise contains 100 calories. s List Foods on this list contain less than 20 calories or less than 5 grams of carbohydrate per serving. When no serving size is given, you can eat the food as often as you desire. However, eat bouillon, pickles, and other high-sodium foods in moderation. Free foods are divided into 5 groups: Fat free and reduced fat foods: Cream cheese, fat free 1 Tbsp Salad dressing, fat free 1 Tbsp Margarine, reduced-fat 1 tsp Sugar free or low sugar foods: Candy, sugar free 1 pc Gum, sugar free Jam or jelly, low sugar 2 tsp Drinks: Bouillon, Coffee, Tea Also, it s important to limit saturated fat. Solid fats, like butter and lard, are high in saturated fat Instead, use oils like olive, canola, and peanut oils. August 2002

6 Healthy Meal lans age 6 Condiments: Catsup Lemon juice Mustard Seasonings: Herbs Spices 1 Tbsp The Meal lans We developed two sets of healthy meal plans to help you plan your daily food intake. The Traditional Meal lans include foods from all food groups. The Vegetarian Meal lans omit meat, poultry, and fish. These meal plans include meat substitutes and dairy products, so they are appropriate for lacto-ovo vegetarians (those who eat milk products and eggs). The meal plans range from approximately 1,200 to 2,500 calories. Dietitians recommend that you eat at least 1,200 calories each day and men at least 1,600 calories per day, even when trying to lose weight. The number of calories you actually eat will depend upon several things: the exact foods you choose (for example, the cut of meat or type of bread) how you prepare the foods the exact amount of each food that you eat Within each set of meal plans, higher calorie menus build on the foods in the 1,200 calorie meal plan. This way you can see which foods were added to increase the calorie level. When added foods first appear, they are marked with an asterisk (*). When the serving size of a food increases, it is marked with an asterisk too. Work with your county Extension family and consumer sciences educator, a registered dietitian, or public health nutritionist to find the meal plan that will work for you.
